BEAUTY BEACH ESSENTIALS

BEAUTY BEACH ESSENTIALS

As you might have noticed by the amount of beach posts we are currently doing, we are quite excited about everything summer. This past week was all about surviving our first heat wave of the year (maybe even in years). And what better place to do so than at the beach? Whenever I go to …

BEAUTY TALK WITH FAYETTE

BEAUTY TALK WITH FAYETTE

I’ll never forget the first time I saw Fayette. A few years ago we bumped into each other on the dance floor, wearing the exact same hysterical shiny pants. Most girls would’ve probably rolled their eyes and moved on, but not Fayette. Instead, she high fived me and we ended up dancing all night. That …

PRIMARY YELLOW

PRIMARY YELLOW

I used to absolutely hate yellow, but the more I think about it (trust me, I’ve even been thinking about a yellow bag lately) the more it grows on me. So when I walked in backstage at Delpozo and saw the primary yellow in the inner corners of the models eyes, I got really excited.

BEAUTY TALK WITH YOKAW

BEAUTY TALK WITH YOKAW

I had the pleasure of working with Yokaw (she’s a make up artist!) a few times now. And every time I do so, I am amazed by her creativity and what she comes up with even if I give her the vaguest description of my ideas. Remember our editorial at the beach? Her work. Remember …

BRUSHES 101

BRUSHES 101

This one is for all the manic lip gloss collectors. The eye palette hoarders. The hand cream obsessed. Basically, all make up maniacs who compulsively splurge on one specific beauty category (you know who you are!). Put the credit card down, and no one gets hurt. We need to have a serious conversation.

SOVIET STRUCK

SOVIET STRUCK

I can’t help it. Russian women fascinate me. There is something magical about them. Irina Shayk, Anne Vyalitsyna, Sasha Pivovarova (to name a few). They behold so much mystery and beauty. Not to mention distance – and their impeccable style. It makes me wonder: the colder the climate, the colder the women? Next week I …

PROENZA SCHOULER FOR MAC

PROENZA SCHOULER FOR MAC

Last Sunday I got so many questions regarding the lip color I was wearing. While I have been in a pretty exclusive relationship with my Ruby Woo ever since I discovered its amazingness through make-up artist Siddhartha, I guess the color Mangrove from the Proenza Schouler for Mac range could be called my Spring fling. …

3 SPRING BEAUTY LOOKS

3 SPRING BEAUTY LOOKS

After two beauty posts here on afterDRK, it is time to properly introduce myself. Hi! Remember the 6 Spring Beauty Essentials and my avowal about their potential? A promise made is a debt unpaid. That’s why I decided to use my first cameo to demonstrate the potential of the beauty products I discussed before. Please …

6 SPRING BEAUTY ESSENTIALS

6 SPRING BEAUTY ESSENTIALS

Ahh, Spring. The time of blooming cherry trees and crocus. The soft escape from winter. The season of rebirth and regrowth. And…an endless indecisiveness. If anything makes me nervous, it’s being in a constant state of ‘in between’. Yes, this whishy-washy sister of summer puts us in dilemmas. It’s often too cold for a skirt, …

BLUSH HOUR

BLUSH HOUR

Yes, my winter beauty bag contains more than just skin care products. We need make-up too! I don’t change my make-up products for the winter season as much as I do with moisturizers and such, but I do have a few blush favorites up my sleeve. Currently on rotation are (pictured from left to right): …
